Everdina “Dini” Braam passed away suddenly

in her own home at the Wedgewood in Kelowna, British Columbia on Friday, May 3, 2013 at the age

of 83 years. She was

born on August 4, 1929 in

Silvolde, the Netherlands Holland. Immigrating to Canada in 1954, she

she married Wilhelmus (“Bill”) Braam. Survived by her

three sons and their families: Mark & Maureen, Nicole

Ireland, and sister-in-law, Connie Heyming of California. 

Sadly predeceased by her parents, grandson Christopher, brother Henry (“Hank”) Heyming and sister Bets Nuyens. 

What was most important to Dini and gave her the

most pleasure were her children and their spouses,

grandchildren and siblings. She worked hard to provide

the best she could for them and gave them much love.

On several occasions over more than 30 years,

she was the catalyst for large family gatherings

which are fondly remembered.
